Atlantic Omens SleeveOur friend JJ. Koczan over at The Obelisk was one of the first to get the new Atlantis record Omens, that is released on LP+CD and CD next week. This is what he had to say about the album:

“Omens, their third mostly-instrumental full-length — there are also two EPs, most recently 2012′s La Petite Mort — on Oct. 14 through Burning World Records, crafting a sonic blend of post-metal, progressive electronica and a sense of tonal weight, resulting in six varied and textured tracks that truly seem to be the output of a clear vision for what the sound should be. Whether it’s the initial ambience of “Rapture” or the patient building of tension that leads to the slow-paced crush of “Widowmaker,” both of Omens‘ vinyl sides produce a rich, immersive feel that’s easy to get lost within.

There are stretches that come across as comparatively minimal, but Omens is never really still, and whether it’s a swirl of synth on backing the emergent shouts on “And She Drops the 7th Veil” or the noisy, chaotic patterning of the side B intro “The Path Into” — that path, incidentally, goes into “Widowmaker” — Atlantis always keep a sense of forward motion despite the changing sphere of each given track and the mood that each piece of the 50-minute offering makes so malleable throughout. As both the first instance of the weighted riffing that comes to the fore periodically and the album’s initial thrust,”Raptor” does a significant amount of work in establishing the atmospheric basis from which the rest of the songs work. It has both parcel fluctuations and an overarching linear build, and pays off in grand style only made more affecting by the drawn out keyboard melodies that top.”

Conan Monnos vinyl pre-order started, Metal Hammer streams whole album

Posted in 2012, Burning World Records, mailorder on March 12th, 2012 by gira1971

Here is your chance to order one of the 100 copies of the gold vinyl version of Monnos. Conan’s new masterpiece that will be unleashed upon the world in a few weeks time. The pre-order is up now over here in our store. And you’ll get a T-shirt with that order as well. Don’t like colored vinyl? There’s always the possibility of buying one on black wax.

If you don’t know what album we are talking about, head on over to Metal Hammer UK. They will stream the Conan album for the whole week.

Some press quotes on Monnos:
Conan are comprised almost exclusively of sonic devastation. They exist as a kind of touchstone, a comparison point of tone-worship taken to a new extreme – you hear another band trying to be really, really heavy, and you ask yourself, “Well, okay, but is it as heavy as Conan?” The answer will nearly always be no. ”

“A band who just wrapped what’s sure to be one of 2012’s best records”

” I shutter to think where they might go from here, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if several bands set sail in this album’s massive wake. Something this bold is bound to be influential.” The Obelisk

“This album should hopefully launch CONAN on the international stage in a big way. As these guys deserve it. They have been doing this for a long while and now its time for the world to open their eyes to CONAN.”

“MONNOS is a genre-defining classic in the making. Simply Superb.” Sludgelord
